What is Food Insecure?

 

What is food insecurity?
 
Food security is a federal measure of a household’s ability to provide enough food for every person in the household to have an active, healthy life. Food insecurity is one way we can measure the risk of hunger.

 

What are the effects of food insecurity?

 

Food insecurity can have a wide impact, depending on each individual’s circumstances. Some of the most common, yet complex, effects of food
insecurity include:

  • Serious health complications, especially when people facing hunger are forced to choose between spending money on food and medicine or medical care;

  • Damage to a child’s ability to learn and grow; and

  • Difficult decisions for seniors — often living on fixed incomes — such as choosing between paying for food and critical healthcare.

 

How you can help:

Feeding America
 

Who goes hungry?  Hunger can affect people from all walks of life. Many Americans are one job loss or medical crisis away from food insecurity – but some people, including children and seniors, may be at greater risk of hunger than others. Get the facts.
